an assault weapon ban that bans 35 different weapons. the weapon used was not an assault weapon, therefore it wasn't banned. >> the definition of assault weapons has been gamed by the gun lobby in the service of the gunmakers, no doubt. if the bushmaster rifle with 30 rounds per clip doesn't qualify as an assault weapon, the term "assault weapon" in my opinion is absolutely meaningless. i wanted to get some answers from congressman kingston. so i had an opportunity to visit with him earlier today. >> congressman, good to have you on "the ed show" tonight. i appreciate your time. >> well, thank you, ed. sad times. >> we're having quite a debate in this country about gun control, obviously. and there is questions of bans coming up in the senate. senator feinstein says she is going to reintroduce the assault weapons ban. as it stands, could you go along with that? >> well, i would have to see what she has in mind. and as you know, the ar-15 that was used in this unfortunate tragedy was not considered an assault weapon. and i don't know if she would put that in there. it only shoots one round

. on september 11th the u.s. ambassador and three other americans were killed on a terrorist attack in libya. tuesday an independent review investigating the incident released its findings. a panel was highly critical of the state department saying they ignored arrests in tripoli for more guards and security upgrades relied who heavily on specific requests instead of security. and used unprotect militia to protect the compound. the report also found the attack was not the result of protests over anti-islamic video as first reported. in a letter to congress, secretary of state hillary clinton said she accepts all of the panel's 29 recommendations writing there is no higher priority for me or my department. >>> though there seems to be progress still no fiscal cliff deal in washington. house speaker john boehner said he has a backup plan. but that's not enough for one in three americans who according to a new survey are cutting back on spending due to fears of going over that cliff. nbc's tracie potts joins us now with more. good morning. >> reporter: mara, good morning. good morning, everyone

't talk about any specific pieces of evidence. >> shepard: all right. to the story that got us here and that is this idea of a motive. it's my understanding from the reporting and from this source at foxnews.com that the reason they think this might be a motive is that he had heard that his mother loved that school where she was volunteering maybe more than she loved him. and that's why he would target her and then that school. >> the story says that the kids that were killed were all first graders. the kids that his mother was spending the most time with when she was volunteering there, according to the report, he was very, very angry about that. and also very angry about the possibility that she might try to have him committed to a psychiatric institution. >> shepard: wow. more funerals today as a result of his actions. >> yeah. two funerals today and two more funerals today, all of them for six-year-old kids and the two funerals this morning and this afternoon were back to back at the saint rose of lima church. the first was for james mattioli, six-year-old boy whose family says
especially loved swimming. his parents used to say he swam like a fish. and loved to visit his grandparents. james also learned to ride his bike. he tried to wear shorts and t-shirts all year round. he loved to use hair gel in order to spike up his brown hair. he was a little boy who looked forward to growing up. he liked to sing at the top of his lungs and would ask how old do i have to be before i can sing on a stage? he also wanted to know when he'd be old enough to order a foot long ham sandwich at subway one of his favorite places. james was born four weeks prematurely, his family used to joke, he came into the world because he was hungry. his parents say he was an early riser, always the first to wake the family up, always eager to start the day. at the end of the day, he loved nothing more than to cuddle up with this mom under a blanket on the couch. james also adored spending time with his dad. in his obituary, he writes, if dad was outside, james liked to be right there with him. their love of one another was one of a kind. james was his dad's mini look-alike. jessica rekos loved e

us, the very latest that you have been able to figure out about why this happened? >> reporter: well, i'll tell you, if the shooter in this case was trying to erase his digital footprint, he may have succeeded. because investigators are telling us that that smashed computer that you referred to was so badly damaged, presumably by the shooter himself, that they are having a hard time retrieving data from the hard drive. but they're not giving up. they're still working on it because they want to try to examine it for any e-mails he might have sent, for any writings he left behind, to learn about any websites that he might have visited. and also, today, we are learning the new gruesome details from the autopsy of nancy lanza, his mother. we're here in front of the house that she shared with her son and they are saying that she was shot four times in the head while she was sleeping in her bedroom, shot by her own son before he went on to that school to kill 26 children and adults. he died of a single shot. we also learned from the medical examiner that he said he was told that the shoote
